On the 22nd September 2018 we have a joint concert with the New Mill Male Voice Choir from Yorkshire.
The New Mill Male Voice Choir is based in the village of New Mill near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, not far from the ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ town of Holmfirth. The choir was founded in 1991 when twelve men gathered in a local public house to sing. Len Williams, a former singer with the Welsh National Opera, became Musical Director and provided the inspiration and encouragement to form these men into a Choir. Two years later and with three times more members the Choir sang as part of the World Choir at Cardiff Arms Park under the baton of Owain Arwel Hughes with Shirley Bassey as the main attraction.
There is a link between the two choirs as for many years their accompanist was Anne Levitt until she and her husband moved to North Wales, Penrhyn Bay. Through a contact within our choir we asked Anne whether she would be interested in joining our musical team. We were so pleased when she agreed and now an important part of the choir and she is also expanding her skills by actively learning Welsh.
The concert is on Saturday the 22nd of September in St John’s Church Llandudno at 8 pm. Doors open at 7:15. Admission is £10 payable at the door – Advance tickets available e-mail Robertalun@aol.com
